Here’s What Coaches Say About PGC:
“PGC has given me the essential knowledge to become a better teacher of the game. I can’t wait to apply PGC’s terminology and approach to the teams I coach. My practices will never be the same.”
— Coach Corliss Williamson | NBA Assistant Coach, Sacramento Kings (Winner of NBA’s Most Improved Player and Sixth-Man of the Year awards, 12-year NBA veteran, member of NBA and NCAA championship teams)
“I’ve been involved in the great game of basketball for 25 years, and I learned more in the first three hours at PGC than in any ten years that I’ve spent in the game.”
— Coach Evan Woodward | Richland, Washington
“Outstanding! The best clinic experience I have witnessed in 36 years of coaching! The combination of the on-court training and classroom sessions was really unique. I will leave here new ideas on how to teach the game. I will definitely be encouraging players and coaches alike to experience PGC.”
— Coach Len Stanley | Bismarck, North Dakoka

Attend a PGC Summer or Year-Round Course
In addition to PGC’s Coaches College, PGC Basketball summer and year-round courses serve as an invaluable “basketball coaching clinic” for coaches of all levels. Over the past five years, over 2,000 coaches have attended a PGC course and nearly every coach that attends PGC says that they get even more out of it than the players.
How PGC Works For Coaches
A maximum of twenty (20) coaches are accepted as “observing coaches” per session. The spots for each course fill on a first-come, first-served basis.
As an Observing Coach, you will attend all of the classroom, video, and court sessions—just like the participating athletes.
You will also benefit from the daily interaction with PGC directors and staff, as well as with other Observing Coaches that attend.
The tuition fees for PGC courses are exactly the same for both players and coaches. The fees for our 5-day, 4-night summer courses do include meals for the week and a single dorm room for coaches. PGC also offers a $100 commuter discount if a dorm room is not required.
“There are not many times that I think I got more than I paid for, but as far as I am concerned, you couldn’t charge enough for the experience my son and I both had. I believe this week at PGC will change my son’s life, as well as my own. I am going to use S.C.H.A.P.E. with all of my teams and we have already instituted your leadership principals in my own home!”
— Coach Sean K. O’Neil, Hudson, New Hampshire
Save 50% off Tuition
If one of your players registers for a course, you will receive a 50% discount off your coaches tuition fee. You can benefit from the coaches discount when you register online. You do not need to register at the same time as your player(s) to benefit from the coaches discount. Coaches discounts are reviewed approximately one month prior to the start of each session and tuition fee balances are adjusted accordingly.
110% Money-Back Guarantee
We know that your time is valuable. That’s why PGC offers an unconditional money-back guarantee, PLUS an extra 10% if you’re not completely satisfied with your learning experience at any one of our PGC courses. Over the past five years, over 2,000 coaches have attended a PGC course and not one coach has requested a refund.
“I appreciate excellence, and excellence was on display throughout my PGC session. The material was expertly presented and I was fully engaged every moment. I found the sequencing and synergy of the lectures, videos and on-court sessions to be highly effective and superior to any other instruction that I have received as a coach. I learned so many coaching concepts that I’m excited to implement in our program.”
— Dan Bearss, Wakarusa, Indiana

Here’s What Rick Torbett Says About PGC:
What Coaches Are Saying About PGC Courses:
“It’s the best basketball camp in America for learning how to think the game.”
Rick Carlisle | Head Coach (Dallas Mavericks, 2011 NBA Champions)
“My daughter is an enthusiastic graduate of PGC, and I can say without reservation that what they offer is unparalleled in the basketball camp industry. If you can attend only one basketball camp this summer, make it PGC. If you can attend five basketball camps this summer, make them all PGC.”
Greg Brittenham | New York Knicks, Assistant Coach (Player Development)
“I have been fortunate to play the game of basketball as a collegiate, Olympic and professional player. As a new coach at the high school level, I was looking for a great summer camp for my players. After getting rave reviews from coaches around the country, I decided to see PGC for myself. I was hooked within the first 20 minutes. PGC’s lessons on leadership, confidence and doing the little things are a must for any young player, regardless of position.”
Coach Jeff Turner | Orlando, Florida. 1984 Olympic Gold Medalist (USA) and 10-year NBA veteran
“I have worked with some of the best teachers of basketball; however, this week I observed the best teacher of the game of basketball (Dena Evans) that I have ever seen. Your lectures were powerful and purposeful, and most impressively, efficient. Through eleven classroom sessions, not only didn’t you take a breath, but I never once wished that you would. Your preparation is flawless, and not a session went by where I wasn’t impressed with your content and delivery. I can’t tell you how impressed I am with the program and with you. Rest assured that if Dick DeVenzio is watching, he is extremely happy with PGC.”
Coach Dave Jankowski | LaPalma, California
“PGC is a fantastic experience for players and coaches. You will leave this program not only a better basketball player, but a better person. I would love to have an entire team of PGC graduates.”
Coach Tom Beach | Forest Park, Indiana (2005 & 2006 state champions)
“Point Guard College is an intensive indoctrination into how to play smart, minimize turnovers, and be a good leader. These are great, great teachers of the game.”
Coach Rick Allison | Arlington, Texas
“PGC is basketball in its purest state: players who are eager to learn, coaches who are enthusiastic about teaching, and an atmosphere filled with positive energy. This is an experience that the players will take with them and apply to all aspects of their lives.”
Coach Jimmy Johnson | Eddyville, Kentucky
“PGC exceeded my expectations, which were high to begin with. The coach was a superb presenter of the materials. No ‘filler’ words to consume time. Each sentence spoken was noteworthy. The material was top-notch. My notes will be a resource for years to come. Thank you for this great ‘college.’”
Coach David Dong | San Mateo, California
“All of the drills were game-like and served a definite purpose. It’s awesome how the points of emphasis were reinforced. Each and every player improved. I’ve been to approximately 50 basketball camps, and you truly have the BEST camp in America.”
Coach Laura Sellers | Normal, Illinois
